It’s time for your summer breakthrough with UW-Madison’s Transfer Scholars Summer Award!

New this year, undergraduate transfer students who enroll in Summer Term 2017 automatically receive an award.

All Spring 2017 Transfer students are eligible to receive the reward, but students must be in good academic standing. Sound too good to be true? It’s not. In a 2015 survey, your peers said they were interested in taking advantage of Summer Term but weren’t able to enroll because they lacked funds for tuition. We’re piloting the UW-Madison Transfer Scholars Summer Award as part of our commitment to helping students reduce their time to degree and debt burden.

Frequently Asked Questions

  

Q: How much is the Summer award?

A: Students who pay the resident or Minnesota tuition rates will receive up to $500 toward the cost of Summer 2017 resident tuition and fees. Students who pay nonresident or international tuition rates will receive up to $1,000 toward the cost of Summer 2017 nonresident tuition and fees.

 

Q: Is there anything I need to do to accept the award?

A: No. If you decide to enroll in summer courses at UW-Madison, the award will automatically be applied to your summer tuition charges.  Once summer tuition charges have been assessed (typically in late April), you can log into your Student Center and access your Tuition Account Summary. There you will see this scholarship listed under pending/anticipated financial aid.  By late May, the Bursar’s Office will apply the award to your summer tuition balance.

 

Q: When can I enroll in Summer Term?

A: Summer Term enrollment will begin March 27, 2017. In March you’ll receive a notification in your Student Center with your summer enrollment date. Discuss with your advisor at SOAR how your Spring and Summer terms can work together.

 

Q: Can I use my award for a different semester?

A: The award is only available for use in Summer 2017. Students must have been enrolled as a degree-seeking student during the Spring 2017 semester.

  

Q: Can I receive the award if I am on Probation or Strict Probation following the Spring 2017 semester?

A: Only students in good academic standing are eligible for the award.
